Well done! Your kids have a great foundation of Adventurous Faith—Now let’s take that to the next level with the transformational experiences at SpringHill!
Get ready! Our overnight and day camps are truly transformational experiences. We’ll focus on taking risks, stretching limits, heeding Jesus’ words repeated in variants of “be not afraid.” And based on your responses, we know your kids are up to the challenge.
Living with Adventurous Faith means trusting that we leave room for God to work and are open to taking risks, he can do immeasurably more than we ever thought possible.
It’s probably not surprising to you that kids find Jesus everywhere—even on a zipline.
One of our favorite stories is that of a middle-school girl (let’s call her Rachel) describing her experience at SpringHill. She was a regular for years, and one day, our President Michael Perry casually asked her what it was that kept her coming back to SpringHill.
Very seriously, Rachel said, “Every time I come to SpringHill, I encounter God. I have an experience with God and my faith grows.”
And so he asked: “What exactly is it that happens every time?”
“You know,” she said, “it just happens when we’re doing camp stuff.”
And that’s the truth. And why SpringHill has enjoyed phenomenal growth. We now serve 55,000 overnight and day campers in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin, and partner with more than 500 churches and other allies. Our innovative—and adventurous—approach helps children find God not only in quiet contemplation and formal prayer but also in canoeing on a lake, remembering that peace is there in the silence when God whispers. Or while riding horses on country trails. Or while braving outdoor high-ropes course. Or, yes, even on a zipline.
Here at SpringHill, we know our success is more than just the result of luck: it’s divinely inspired. We stand where we are because God gave us a vision of what a Christian camp could be. We ran with that vision and made it a reality. This vision has not only propelled SpringHill, it has influenced Christian camping all over the world.
Hope. Fun. Faith. That’s The SpringHill Way.
Plus, we’re excited to announce Michael Perry’s upcoming book Experience = Everything: Life Transformation The SpringHill Way, which will be published by Advantage Media and available soon.
